Rudolph, Susanne Hoeber; Rudolph, Lloyd I.; Kanota, Mohan Singh
An engrossing narrative of a colonial subjects life contemplating his Imperial masters at the height of colonialism in India; based upon the first eight years of his life-long diary. Amar Singh, a Rajput nobleman and officer in the Indian Army, kept a diary for 44 years from 1898, when he was twenty, until his death in 1942. In it he writes about the Jodhpur court, the Imperial Cadet Corps, and the British Expeditionary Force in China during the Boxer rebellion. A century before hybridity, he constructs a hybrid self, an Edwardian officer cum gentleman and a martial Rajput cum manor lord. With the diary acting as alter ego and best friend, Amar Singh resists becoming a coolie for the raj when he finds the British to be racist masters as well as friends. He writes and reads extensively to keep himself amused, he says, and to avoid the boredom of princedom and raj philistinism. Here the authors focus on the first eight years of Amar Singhs diary (1898-1905), offering a rare and intimate glimpse into British colonialism from the point of view of a colonial subject. Illustrated with fifty photographs and facsimiles from Amar Singhs readings.633pp.

Nata, R. (editor)
This series presents substantial results from around the globe in selected areas of educational research. The field of education is consistently on the top of priority lists of every country in the world, yet few educators are aware of the progress elsewhere. Many techniques, programs and methods are directly applicable across borders. This series attempts to shed light on successes wherever they may occur in the hope that many wheels need not be reinvented again and again. 183pp.

McEwan, Colin; Middleton, A. M; Cartwright,Caroline; Stacey,Rebecca
The turquoise mosaics explored in this book are some of the most striking objects from the Museum's Ethnographic collection. Originating from the Aztec civilisation and first encountered by Europeans during the Spanish conquest of 1519, these objects are more than simply things of beauty. Among them are masks, shields, helmets and knives, each with particular uses during ritual and performance. Recent scientific investigation has identified the materials that comprise the mosaics, the technical skills required by those who made them and even the places where the turquoise was mined. The book explains the techniques used by the scientists and combines this new information with fascinating historical sources noting, for example, the response to the mosaics in the court of Charles V. Overall, the book will give an up-to-date introduction to these mysterious objects. 96pp.
